Peggle from PopCap comes to Amazon App store tomorrow

Posted on Jun 20 2011 - 11:09pm by Mike Wewerka

If you’ve been playing and enjoying PopCaps latest release on the Android OS, Plants vs. Zombies, than you’ll want to check out Peggle. Peggle is an addictive puzzle game that has sold millions on multiple platforms. Much like PvZ’s, if you act quickly and download Peggle from the Amazon Appstore you’ll score it for free as it will be the free premium app tomorrow. If you miss out on the deal, the app will go back up to its normal price of $2.99.

I’m already addicted to Plants vs Zombies and Angry Birds Rio, I don’t know if I can squeeze this into my rotation, but I’ll sure as hell try.

    Amazon app store… meh.
    I’ll get it if it comes to the android market.

      Distribution method aside, it was free for 24 hours. Why would you refuse that just to get it on the Android Market, where you’d have to either pay 2.99 or get one with ads? In any case, it’s .apk file and can be uninstalled just like any other app. To disregard Amazon’s Appstore because it’s not the Android Market is silly when they give you free premium apps with no ads.

        Because I think it’s bullshit that apps is spread through different app stores. I don’t want to support it. I want everything to be in one place. It’s just way easier that way. Imagine you’re looking for a certain app and you have to go through 5 different app stores and look. That’s just bullshit.

        As Peggle is my favorite game (used to play it a lot when I had an iphone) I did actually try. But got a message that it wasn’t available in my region (I live in Norway). And there I got another reason to not like it.

        I don’t think it’s silly. If everybody did it amazon would’ve probably shut it down and we would’ve gotten it in the android market.

          Fair enough, to each his own, but it’s funny…people never had a problem with App Brain carrying apps that the Android Market didn’t and people with Jailbroken iPhones have no problem having to use Cydia and the App Store. I just feel that if it works, it saves me money and I have an easy time using the app, than I’m okay with it. I can completely understand you being upset since it is not available in your country, that is unfortunate.

            I used to use app brain when I found the search functions lacking in android market. Had no idea they had exclusive apps though. Maybe that’s why people didn’t complain? :P

            Also, Cydia is a whole nother story as Apple don’t allow apps they don’t like, even great ones, in that case Apples app store is bullshit IMO, there’s a reason I moved over to Android, hehe.

            Another reason I’d like to have everything in Android Market is that when I buy apps there, it’s tied to my Google account. And I really don’t mind paying for apps I enjoy, even if I can get them for free other places.
